The play opens November 3 and runs weekends through November 19. You may email the director, Ken Kienas, at with any questions. Synopsis It's Christmas in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies! Radio station OKKK news personalities, Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, report on various Yuletide activities. It's 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters of Tuna attempt to cope with seasonal traumas such as the disaster-prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol, and a yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom. Characters 2 to 6 men or women able to play characters of various ages and sexes. There are 22 characters in the play. It was originally written and played by 2 men. Actors are required to take on various personalities with quick costume changes as they exit and come back on stage. The director will determine the number of actors cast at auditions.
